height 12 3/4in, diameter 9in

Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    From the Estate of Isidore M. Samuels

    Cf:
    See Spivey, Richard L., fig. 6.25, for a similar vessel, dated 1969, of smaller scale and with avanyu design, the lid with near-identical knop.

    If the present lot was manufactured contemporaneous to the published example, it would have been during the time Tony lived with his grandmother after leaving the Navy, honing his skills as a ceramicist (Spivey, p. 108). That Maria Martinez had a hand in the creation of this jar is at least suggested by the additional signature.
